TPS members back active travel


26 April 2019

Most members of the Transport Planning Society regard investment in walking and cycling infrastructure as their top priority, according to results from the annual survey of members. 

Asked about policy priorities, 61 per cent put walking and cycling top – up from 53 per cent last year. The modes have achieved top spot in the survey every year since 2012. Second priority was rail investment (non high-speed) with 47 per cent. Support for high-speed rail and major trunk road schemes were at just 12 per cent and nine per cent respectively. 

Members think decarbonising transport should be the number one policy driver, followed by using land-use to reduce the need to travel. Only 17 per cent support more runway capacity in South East England. Almost two-thirds (63 per cent) of respondents were consultants and 20 per cent were from the public sector.
